We tested this out as on overhead for my small Gretsch drum kit at first and were very happy with the smooth response from snare to
tom's and cymbals. The kick drum was utilizing on old Beyer mike.
As a vocal mike we were amazed of the response singing jazz, blues
and light stuff, the AT2020 was superb. As a vocalist I realized how much I have been cheating with the Sure SM 58, live standard of the industry. This AT2020 tells it like it is. From 3 to 9" from the boom
stand with several placements and angles it was verbatum exactly what was being produced. In the vein of folk music, bluegrass, light jazz and pop tunes........It will teach you how to use your body mechanics and not rely on a close proximity "lip to the grill" for tone changes etc. as with my old 58 vocal mike.
This 2020 will also make for a very nice overhead when I play more intense venues without compromising the true sound of an acoustic drum kit as my little condenser 'sizzler' cymbal catchers I have used for years did. I am very pleased to have this very versatile and value driven tool. I was so bored with the close mike pop/rock sound I was getting with live performance of miking every drum instead of
a true acoustic aural experience. The dynamics are represented with my performance so much better. I was also impressed with the AT2020 as a vocal tool in that if one remembers to slightly turn away
it will not give the signature 'pop' with the letter P or B. Only in an outdoor situation (with wind) will I need a pop sponge. I am in a high
ceiling jazz room with some 200 hz rolling around and with a simple -10db cut of the lows on the mixer this issue will be rectified. There is no need to purchase the high dollar feature of a filter cut on any microphone in my opinion.
Therefore I have no need to buy the more expensive Audio-Technica
unit. I am most satisfied with the AT2020! close [-]
by fromThis is a great condenser mic to start off with. Not only is it at an amazing price, but it sound extraordinary.

Great value. Period.
by Faiz Fadzil from MalaysiaWithout a doubt, this is one mic that you shouldn't be without - especially if you're just starting out your collection of microphones and need a reliable workhorse condenser mic.

I've ... read more [+]used it on vocals, acoustic guitar and full-on overdriven guitar cabinets. During a recent weekend live recording session, I used the AT2020 heavily on the 10 bands and 30 songs that we tracked. And the it performed like a champ through it all.
Go ahead and buy one. Heck, I bought three! close [-]
The AT2020 delivers in every aspect that you want a good quality cardiod condenser mic to offer. The vocals are clean, crisp, and very direct. The mic really gives a very airy sound which, added with a preamp or compressor plug-in of choice, is the perfect combination a good vocal is looking for. I have used this mic on Hip Hop, R&B, and Rock recordings. For the price, this mic can't be beat. They say you get what you pay for. With the AT2020 you get an incredible value in a very affordable mic, and so much more.
